As the old adage goes, Less is more. Estee & Matthew definitely kept things simple and sophisticated.  The details in this graceful affair are elegantly understated. From the bride’s sleek silhouette, to the classic choice of roses in the flower bouquets.

Photographed by Estilo Photography, the happy couple exchanged vows and became man and wife at the luxuriant, Shepstone Gardens. Estee shares a bit of their story…

Lovebirds | How did you two meet?

We met through a mutual friend at University, we went for drinks at Hatfield Square (of all places) and from there we hit it off. We would go for long coffee sessions and after a year and a half we decided to take our friendship to the next level and haven’t looked back since!

I said Yes | How did the proposal go down?

Our first kiss was at the top of the lion enclosure at the Pretoria zoo. On the day Matthew proposed he took me back to this spot, where it all started, and got down on one knee to propose.
